in baseball after the 1950 season. just think about how compassionate that was and robbie has never forgotten it. >> joe: utley leading off in the bottom of the seventh. howard will follow and then jayson werth against phil coke. ball two. we talked about that run for the yankees. that was world championship number two of five straight between 1949 and 1953. the phillies, who were swept in that series, would not get to the world series again until 1980 when they won their first world championship over kansas city. they won it last year.
trying to repeat here in 2009. here is the 2-1 to utley. 2-2. phil coke is the fourth pitcher of the night for the yankees. burnett lasted two plus. robertson, two shutout innings. the thing for aceves. 2-2. full count. >> tim: i don't think it's arguable that rich ashburn, the most popular sports figure in this city's history. >> joe: part of that whiz kids
team and then one of the beloved voices covering this phillies organization. >> tim: from 1963 to 1997. >> joe: 3-2 is hammered foul. you were a former broadcast partner of ritchie ashburn who had an unbelievable sense of humor. >> tim: unbelievable. >> joe: two-time batting champion and four-time all-star and there is that run as a phillies broadcaster from '63 to '97 and a hall of famer. >> tim: i just smile thinking about it. >> joe: another 3-2 to utley and a shot into right! how about this series for utley? another home run! second of the night. he ties reggie jackson for most
in one world series and he makes it 7-2. >> tim: when you stand on top of the plate, you like the ball inside because you have to have quick enough hands to like it inside. another home run for utley. >> joe: the crowd wants a curtain call. >> tim: i don't blame them. >> joe: foul ball by ryan howard. utley stays in the dugout. >> tim: middle of the plate. not for long. >> joe: he is about to turn 31
in december and he is definitely in the conversation, tim, chase utley, that age-old question if you were going to start a franchise, who would you start it with? he has to be in that conversation. >> tim: absolutely. no question. >> joe: the 0-1. good swing by howard. one of the better cuts he's taken in this world series. it's 0-2. and off balance with that swing. alex rodriguez is out of room. it's out of play. we talked about it during game one that chase utley, kind of a
new stat en vogue, on base percentage, plus slugging percentage, as far as a second baseman, the defensive position, at the plate, he is number two all-time in that stat to rogers hornsby. >> tim: fastball up. >> joe: 0-2 pitch. and it's up and out of the strike zone. ball one. coke gives up a home run to the lefty utley and howard goes around for his record-tying 12th strikeout in this world series.
>> tim: a breaking ball to ryan howard. we've said that a lot because that's what the yankees have done. they've thrown him a lot of breaking balls. looked like he went too far. >> joe: he ties willie wilson for the most strikeouts in a world series. a record willie wants no part of and now he has company with ryan howard, set back in 1980. so hughes getting ready. the yankees try and get him figured out. a big part of the bull pen that has certainly struggled this postseason. phil hughes. there is ball one up and in to jayson werth with 1 for 3 with rbi single and run scored in a three-run third inning. so back-to-back batters, one guy ties reggie jackson, mr. october, for most home runs in a world series. the guy behind him, ryan howard, ties willie wilson for most strikeouts in a world series.
utley is doing his part to make sure that -- >> tim: kind of the story of two swings. utley's and then howard's. >> joe: 2-0 the count on jayson werth who has popped seven home runs this postseason and he flies one into center for gardner. two out. here's ibanez. 1 for, an rbi single as well back in that three-run third. hit the ball hard three times tonight. now deals with the left-hander phil coke.
there's another good swing, but a foul back. he doesn't leave much behind when he cuts it loose. he may have a tear and in a muscle in his abdomen, but he doesn't swing like it. here is the 0-1 pitch. one ball, one strike. the yankees will have their big bats in the eighth inning, damon, teixeira, and rodriguez. bull pen is quiet for philadelphia. lee is over 100 pitches on the night. up to 103. here is the 1-1. straightens up ibanez. ball two.
on 2-1. ibanez launches one to right! get out the tape measure. that makes it 8-2. off the billboard, over the seats in right center. and the phillies have their biggest lead of the night, thanks to two seventh inning home runs. and that is it for phil coke. >> tim: and that billboard in right center field, says "drive 'em out of here." and that is what ibanez did.
you know why i sell tools? tools are uncomplicated? nothing complicated about a pair of 10 inch hose clamp pliers. you know what's complicated? shipping. shipping's complicated. not really. with priority mail flat rate boxes from the postal service shipping is easy. if it fits, it ships anywhere in the country for a low flat rate. that's not complicated. come on. how about...a handshake. alright. priority mail flat rate boxes only from the postal service. a simpler way to ship.
>> joe: five home runs this world series for chase utley. first two against sabathia and two tonight and one off burnett and one off phil coke to tie reggie jackson for the most in a world series. 8-2. ibanez with a shot off phil coke. now phil hughes is trying to get his pitching stuff back in order. two out, nobody on, and a fastball is in for a strike to feliz who is 0 for 3. >> tim: even with the yankees trailing 8-2, joe girardi trying to get something positive to take back to new york, if they lose this game.
>> joe: breaking ball fools feliz and the count 0-2. the pitcher's spot has been cleared. so girardi can let hughes go a little while. the yankees will have the 2, 3, and 4 hitters in their half of the eighth. and a breaking ball gets feliz looking. so there is a positive for phil hughes. two homers in the inning and six-run philadelphia lead after seven. that can take so much out of you. i feel like i have to wind myself up just to get out of bed. then...well... i have to keep winding myself up to deal with the sadness, the loss of interest, the trouble concentrating, the lack of energy. if depression is taking so much out of you, ask your doctor about pristiq®.

( rhythmic clapping ) ( chanting ) ( shouting ) gatorade-- that's "g." and awhile back i got an idea right in there. and you know what it was? make my pc simpler. so what did i do? i pass it along to microsoft. next thing you know, windows 7 and this new snap feature. now if i'm working at two things at once i just drag this over here, this over here. snap! simpler! pretty much exactly what i told them. i mean i'm not trying to take all the credit... wife: he called his mother.
of course i called her. she needed to know this. i'm a pc and windows 7 was my idea. >> joe: ben francisco takes over in center field and nobody was more surprised than that than shane victorino who looked out and somebody else was standing in it. ben francisco and shane victorino came back and said, what is the deal? >> tim: when he was pointing twice like that, he says do i go back out this and go to left and come out of the game?
charlie manuel said no. i think they are giving him a rest with a six-run ball game and not a bat idea. >> joe: ben francisco replaces shane vek tore reno. top of the eighth inning. johnny damon up. a flyball down the left-field li line, slicing foul. strike two. chan ho park and scott eyre in the bull pen for the phillies. johnny damon has a single, run scored, a walk and a rbi groundout. set up here at 0-2 and a breaking ball misses. ball one.
teixeira next. to have the. top of the eighth. 1-2 pitch. reaching for it. checks on rollins and he can't get a grip on the ball. so from near strikeout on that breaking ball called ball one to that grounder to short and jimmy rollins couldn't field it cleanly. >> tim: you can see that ball hung up in the heel of the glove. rollins with only six errors on the year. i think it's going to be a base hit and it is. should have been. >> joe: it brings in teixeira. weekdays make lunch time new prime time as foxsports.com brings you lunch with benefits. logon to original sports shows delivered to your desktop weekdays at 1:00 eastern. tomorrow is coach speaks with brian billick and only at foxsports.com on msn. one on, nobody out for teixeira. and a strike from cliff lee.
that's as good as his velocity has been all night. 91 miles per hour from the left-hander. lee is 0 for 3 and now 1 for 17 in this world series. 1-1. >> tim: cliff lee, like cc sabathia. look like they can throw 15 innings, if necessary. >> joe: pitch number 110 is swung on and missed by teixeira. strike two. he has life with that fastball here in the eighth. and that ball is hammered into left field. it will get past ibanez to the wall. teixeira digs fo
